PORTLAND.

PORTLAND.

Keep Portland Weird. So the T-Shirt slogan says anyway, and I think I'd agree with that. Definitely a city that's happy doing it's own thing and not worried about being compared to anywhere else. With more independent coffee roasters and cafes that you can shake your drip-filled-reusable-cup at, Portland's chilled, laid-back attitude to life is certainly appealing.

MADRID.

MADRID.

A few days in Spain's capital city, Madrid. It felt a lot like walking around London. The main shopping street, Gran Via, reminded us of Regent Street, the palace was a lot like Buckingham Palace and they even have their own Crystal Palace... it's a bit more intact than the one in London though!
